Residential cartons can be recycled for free through the provincial Recycle BC
program. In the Capital Region this is available through the curbside blue box recycling program
as well as some drop off locations.
Paper cartons can be challenging to know what to do with as they can’t be recycled with regular paper, due to their plastic content. They are accepted in the curbside recycling program with your plastic and metal containers, in the blue box.
Refundable cartons are managed through the beverage container return program. See the listing for Beverage Containers (refundable)
for the location of collection facilities in the region.
